Non-invasive Hemodynamic Monitoring Systems


In critical care environments, where a few seconds can make a difference in saving lives, a hemodynamic monitoring system stands as an indispensable tool, improving patient safety and raising the level of care in healthcare centers. This sophisticated technology plays a critical role in the comprehensive evaluation and treatment of critically ill patients. By continuously monitoring vital hemodynamic parameters such as blood pressure, cardiac output, and oxygen saturation through the bracelet, the system provides healthcare providers with accurate, real-time information about a patient's cardiovascular status. This information is critical to optimize fluid and medication administration, tailor treatment strategies to individual patient needs, and detect early signs of deterioration, allowing for timely interventions.

Non-invasive Hemodynamic Monitoring System


A renowned International Medical Company embarked on a crucial quest to improve the functionality of its non-invasive hemodynamic monitoring system. Their primary requirement was a single board capable of seamlessly integrating with a 9.7” touch panel and peripheral devices while meeting the strict environmental standards found in hospital environments. Primary goals included a compact form factor that fits perfectly within the system chassis and a fanless design to ensure noise-free operation, critical for healthcare environments. To ensure maximum reliability and provide accurate treatment information, the single-board computer had to be meticulously designed using the most robust and durable components with a long lifespan. Furthermore, compatibility with its specialized operating system, OBERON, was imperative to ensure smooth and efficient system performance. This case study highlights the intricate balance between innovation, durability, and customization in the pursuit of cutting-edge medical technology.

Main Requirements

  1. Compact embedded motherboard.

  2. Capable of accommodating a 9.7" LVDS touch panel for control and visualization of patient hemodynamic parameters.

  3. Seamlessly integrates with the OBERON operating system.

  4. Engineered for durability and boasts an extended product lifespan.
